The competition offered 30 independent retailers and their families the chance to “make their dreams come true”, as a thank you for informing their customers about JPS’ innovations.
Winner’s included Mr Jayesh Makhecha, of Stevens Tobaccos in Bexhill-On-Sea, who won the chance to watch an Ed Sheeran concert at a private box in Wembley.
Mr Makhecha said: “What a fantastic prize. It falls on my birthday weekend and I am due to be a new dad two weeks after that so it will be a great treat for myself and Priya, my wife. Thanks so much; I will never forget it.”
Mr Raju Patel, of News Rack in Eastbourne was convinced winning a holiday in Paris was a “wind up”. He said: “I never usually win anything.”
Mr Jasdev Jatana, who owns three stores in March, Cambridgeshire, won a PS4. He said that in his locality there was always a need to keep up with the latest trends in the market, and that JPS’s latest enhancements had certainly delivered in that respect.
